OK Go Meet The Muppets

With The Muppets slated for release in November, Disney is slowly trying to reintegrate the iconic band of puppets into the mainstream. They began running teasers for the film this past spring and on Tuesday they released Muppets: The Green Album, a collection of some of the Muppets biggest songs performed by some of today’s biggest acts.

OK Go were tasked with the responsibility of recording what is perhaps the Muppets most widely known tune, “The Muppet Show Theme Song.” Written by Jim Henson and Sam Pottle, the song opened and closed The Muppet Show for five seasons in the UK and US, from 1976-1981.

Down below, you can check out the newly released music video for OK Go’s take on the song. And then, set your DVR’s for the quartet’s August 31st performance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.  You’re not going to want to miss this as the band will be joined by some very, very special friends.
